Lorin, you can find any kind of person in any kind of place.
I try to be always educated in what i write and what to ask, and most of
the time i've been answered more politely than i was.

But back on topic i have been for the last 4 months a SUSE 10.0 user and
while the distro is the most polished out there in look & feel
sometimes, having to deal with yast (slow) repository sometimes is a
hassle (it's written the right way, isn't it ?).

Fedora has (with Fedora Tracker site) a great way to configure yum and
now yumex has grown enough to be be really user friendly.

I am afraid that after having added to the pool Ubuntu we are left out
of alternatives :-)
